In with the new; school embraces new technology in the classroom

Published on 14/05/2015

The requirement

Burwell Village College primary school decided to replace their very old interactive whiteboards and projectors in 15 of its classrooms. Due to the age of the equipment some classes were experiencing very poor visual quality and replacement bulbs were costing the school a small fortune.

The solution

With this in mind the School Business Manager and ICT Technician attended an exhibition hosted by ESPO where they met with staff representatives from Genee World, specialist in audio visual ICT equipment. The staff were very knowledgeable about their products and suggested equipment that would suit the changing needs of the school. After the event the school continued discussions with Genee World and School Business Manager, Sandy Cater said “Genee World was very helpful and patient, answering questions courteously which was very reassuring for us”.

The results

The school purchased a total of 15, 65” Genee Touch Boards by placing an order through ESPO. They continued to work closely with Genee World who remained very obliging and cooperative throughout the delivery and installation process with the Installation team working around teaching staff with minimal disruption to the school day. Before leaving, each installation was visited with the school’s ICT Technician to ensure that each board worked correctly and to the teacher’s satisfaction. Follow up training has been arranged for staff and further sessions are planned to provide individually tailored training in the future.

Since the installation of the new boards the visual quality of what children can actually see in lessons has improved dramatically and staff are learning the wider benefits this interactive technology can bring to the classroom.

“The support from both ESPO and Genee World has been exceptional and on behalf of the school, I would have no hesitation in recommending either company”.
